    Seems the Estate of a certain artist is objecting to a moonwalking likeness being used in Plants vs Zombies, and consequently said artist's likeness is about to be replaced.

    Michael Jackson Family Force PvZ Re-Design | Rock, Paper, Shotgun

    Replacement's apparently going to be a disco zombie. JT maybe?

    Thats pretty bad. I thought it was great when I first saw the MJ zombie :(

    It only looks like him due to the hair, cloths and moves... :/

    Big fail.

    Why do people go out to "protect" a likeness when it's being used in a way that is actually advantageous *sigh*

    I'm with you Mighty Brush. Would have thought the extra attention would have been a good thing for him. Seems they're forgetting that any press is good press. Or maybe that's the point of the objection :confused: :eek: :w

    Booo !

    Crap, if that looks like MJ, then he really was in bad shape at the end.

    I hadn't been following him in the latter years.

    Oh and I forgot to say that even from the other side of the grave the weirdness continues to haunt those of us still around.
